What are the odds? I’d post a blog about spectacular catwalk calamities, and then crash! bam! boom! a model falls on the runway right in front of me. It happened last night at a fashion show for Lyric Culture’s Nude collection in Santa Monica at the Fred Segal on 5th. The photos (by Enzo Giobbe) illustrate the diva’s dive and recovery, then a few follow-up images (by me) show how rock’n roll glam saved the day.
Newsflash: Fresh paint and high heels don’t mix.
Don’t worry, folks at home. She’s gonna be OhhhKayyy.
But Wait… There’s More!
I’m watching the paint dry. Literally.
The model takes a few cautious strides, and…
…She steps, she scores!
Justin Tranter, lead singer of Semi Precious Weapons, hand-walked the next model onstage (who didn’t look too confident!) and announced to the crowd, “These bitches may be falling, but that’s fuckin’ rock’n roll!”
After the Nude collection catwalk event concluded (no more trips, thanks to a track of silver shag carpet placed over the slick surface), Semi Precious Weapons took the stage and kicked off their show with a sexy send-up of the whole paint-skating smashup.
More catwalk and concert soon! (Plus video)
